Mark and Chelsea Welcome you to the Boat Inn

The Boat Inn, Ashleworth will be holding their second annual beer, cider and music festival since new landlord and landlady, Mark and Chelsea Fox took over the historic riverside pub after a period of closure following serious flooding in 2014.

The event, taking place on the 18th, 19th and 20th of August is set once again to feature an outdoor bar serving a large selection of real ales ciders, a pig roast and BBQ (vegetarian options available). There will be a live music stage featuring a selection of fantastic musicians and bands.

Tickets are £10 for a single day or £20 for all three days. All tickets include a free festival pint glass.

The event will be raising money for the Severn Area Rescue Association.

Mark Fox, 32 says, “We were overwhelmed by the support and feedback following our first mini music festival so we are really excited to do it all again, hopefully minus the rain although that didn't stop anyone from having a great weekend!”
